U.S. SENATE —U.S. Senator Steve Daines today released the following statement after meeting with President-elect Donald J. Trump’s designee for the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions.
“I know Jeff Sessions to be a kind-hearted man that stays true to his word and honors the commitment to the rule of law,” Daines stated. “In his new role as Attorney General, I have confidence that he will faithfully defend the Constitution and enforce the law – principles that were too often lacking during the Obama administration.”
Daines and Sessions discussed the importance of protecting Constitutional liberties and the balance between civil liberties and security to ensure Americans’ Fourth Amendment rights are protected.
They also discussed the rising use of methamphetamine in Montana, which is driving up violent and property crime numbers. By early December, Yellowstone County filed 500 abuse and neglect petitions.
